Elimination Chamber history

The history of the Elimination Chamber

For the fourth time in the history of WWE, 10 tons of steel and two miles of chain will be constructed over the ring at New Year's Revolution when the WWE Championship is defended in an Elimination Chamber Match.

Elimination Chamber Rules:

Two Superstars start the match, while four others are held in chambers inside the structure. After a predetermined amount of time, one Superstar is released from his chamber and let out into the fray. This continues until all six Superstars have entered the action. A Superstar can only be eliminated when he is pinned or submits. The last man standing in this match is declared the winner.
